Wind energy: another ethanol?

Re: “Pickens plans huge wind farm – He may build privately owned lines to bring power from Panhandle,” last Thursday Business.

People are beginning to wake up to the fact that ethanol may not be the answer to our energy problems and may indeed create more problems than it solves.

I am sure if there were no long-lasting negatives associated with wind turbines, T. Boone Pickens might even build them on his own property. Shouldn’t we have neutral agencies examine the impact before we build, or wait until after the fact to find wind – like ethanol – may not be without consequences?
